It’s never fun when a cat dies whether from old age or an accident. While most cat lovers have their cats cremated or buried, Steve Munt, a former NASA employee, decided to honor his cat’s death by having its ashes sent into space.

The cat, named Pikachu, will now be remembered forever at a cost of only $5,000. Steve Munt is running a GoFundMe page to allow others to contribute to his cat’s send-off into space. When your own cat is gone, perhaps sending its ashes into space might be an option for you too.
